In June, Marvel announced 45 new titles launching this fall as part of its "All-New, All-Different Marvel" campaign. One of those titles was Invincible Iron Man, written by Brian Michael Bendis with artwork by David Marquez.
"Having an inspired Bendis tackling that character and bringing his gift for gab - not only crafting great stories but that ear for great dialogue - is going to bring a whole new dimension to the comic-book page," said Marvel editor in chief Axel Alonso to USA Today.
Now, Marvel has released even more details about this new title including panels from its first issue, and the most noticeable change from the previous Invincible Iron Man to this Iron Man is the iconic armor that the superhero wears.
The silver armor is now gone, replaced by the red and gold suit we've seen so often in the Iron Man and Avengers films. In this preview, Iron Man looks a lot like the Robert Downey Jr. version of the character we've seen onscreen, leaving us to wonder if this is just another way that Marvel's cinematic universe has affected its comic books.
Invincible Iron Man #1 takes place right after Marvel's Secret Wars event and not only gives Iron Man new armor, but also a new supporting cast and new villains. Marvel also promises "a shocker of a last page that will have the entire comic industry talking," as well as try to answer the question of who Tony Stark's biological parents really are.
There are also variant covers of Invincible Iron Man available, too, including a cosplay variant, as well as a hip hop variant. Other variant covers include artwork by Yasmine Putri, Bruce Timm, Adi Granov, Skottie Young, John Tyler Christopher, Sara Pichelli, Mahmud Asrar, Nick Bradshaw, Valerio Schiti and Ryan Stegman.
Here's the preview of the art from the inaugural issue of Invincible Iron Man:
